The annual young adult advocacy conference of Friends Committee on National Legislation, Spring Lobby Weekend, is fast approaching!
This year, we’ll be lobbying Congress for justice reform. Please recommend Spring Lobby Weekend to the young adults in your communities, especially young adult Friends in your Quaker meeting or church.
Spring Lobby Weekend will bring together hundreds of students, recent grads, Quakers, and young adults to learn about their power as advocates. Participants will learn about how to build safer communities through violence interrupter programs and then—grounded in new knowledge, skills, and an understanding of Quaker values and experiences – we’ll meet with members of Congress.
Please spread the word about this opportunity to the young adult F/friends in your lives.
